Gulf Boulevard Ph. II
Undergrounding Conversion

Madrid CPWG was engaged by the City of Madeira Beach to design their Gulf Blvd Utility Undergrounding Phase II project focused on updated roadways, sidewalks, and relocation of utilities underground. The resulting design created significant improvements to the aesthetics of utilities in the corridor. The design included moving overhead electrical and cable wires underground, replacing old light fixtures with new light fixtures, replacing wood poles with concrete poles, landscaping the new safety medians, and Local Agency Project (LAP) services for a full mill and resurface the corridor. A maintenance of traffic (MOT) plan was created to facilitate the undergrounding construction in this high-volume traffic area.

The Madrid CPWG team also helped the city to obtain easements or find alternate locations for transformers and switchboxes by coordinating with the public regarding lighting enhancement and other amenities. We were also able to assist by coordinating with utility companies to facilitate the conversion to underground utilities and provide construction administration.
